Cortus has got two orders for engineering and process supply for two gasifyers with burners and gas coolers/boilers to the German companies blueFLUX Energy and Holzner Druckbehalter. The gasifyers are combined with the patented blueFLUX upstream hydrolysis process
. It is their two first commercial projects in Bavaria, Germany. Engineering work is started and the gasifyers are planned for delivery in Q1 and Q2 in 2023. The first ½ MW project is for hydrogen and the second 6 MW for substituting natural gas in heating furnaces in the brick industry with synthesis gas.
BlueFlux energy has developed a new hydrolysis technology, for production of coal and steam from organic residues. For scaling and a fast market entry, blueFLUX Energy is now cooperating with Cortus and incorporating their WoodRoll® gasification technology into the process. With WoodRoll® gasification technology, Cortus Energy has shown how carbon from pyrolysis can be gasified in water vapor at high temperature to a very pure syngas. It is Cortus Energy’s unique technology that has now found a new application in blueFLUX Energy’s solution.
The parties are in negotiation for a licensing agreement for business expansion and coming projects.
”It is extremely gratifying that blueFlux Energy and Holzner Druckbehalter has selected WoodRoll® and Cortus as their gasification partner for their first projects and pipieline forward,” says Cortus Energy’s founder Rolf Ljunggren.
”Cortus’ unique technical platform gives us business opportunities that take the business forward and generate revenue already this year”, says Cortus Energy’s CEO Håkan Sigfridsson.
“WoodRoll® and Cortus is the right choice and combination for our hydrogen and energy gas projects where the WoodRoll® performance makes a big difference”, says Hubert Kohler CEO of blueFLUX Energy and owner of Holzner Druckbehalter.
